Is there any direct ferry from Morocco to Gibraltar ? There is a ferry between Tanger Med (about 40 km east of Tangiers city) and Gibraltar , but you will have to do some research into the best place to buy tickets.
Passenger and cargo ships anchor in the Gibraltar Harbour. Also, a ferry links Gibraltar with Tangier in Morocco.
In truth, Morocco is a safe place to visit. There’s only really small crime there ( scams and pickpockets) and you’re unlikely to be assaulted or seriously hurt as a tourist in the country. Morocco is super safe for tourists now.
Is Tangier worth visiting ? If you’re nearby than certainly it’s well worth a visit as it has a distinctly unique feel you won’t find elsewhere in Morocco. However, if you won’t be near the city it may not really be worth the time to reach it.
Living on Gibraltar is expensive , both in terms of housing and eating and drinking, far more so than in Spain. Living across the border in Spain will reduce your cost of living enormously. Lots of people work on Gib and live in Spain for those reasons.
Often referred to as “The Rock” – Gibraltar is a melting pot of English, Spanish and North African cultures. Expect sunny days all year round, dramatic cliff-sides with monkeys clinging on and a whole range of exciting things to do. All in all, this British Overseas Territory is well worth visiting at any time of year.
The distance between the Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco is only 7.7 nautical miles (14.24 kilometers, 8.9 miles) at its narrowest point.
British Airways has served Gibraltar for many years and its daily services from London Heathrow take around three hours to reach The Rock. Monarch has regular flights from Luton, Manchester and Birmingham, and easyJet flies in daily from London Gatwick.
Road travel You can drive in Gibraltar with a UK driving licence.
Los Barrios & Algeciras
1. Re: from Tangier coast can I see Europe across Gibraltar strait? You can , on a clear day, see Spain beautifully across the straits. Save the beaches for the Spanish side.
The ferry crossing from Algeciras to Ceuta is operated by 3 companies, both of which take roughly 1 hour. The prices for the FRS, Trasmediterranea and Balearia sailings are roughly 35 euros for a foot passenger, but you can take a vehicle too.
You swim from Tarifa (not Gibraltar) to Morocco . It’s 10 miles (or 16km) across. They provided us with both a pilot boat and a smaller motorised support boat. In general, Channel Swimming rules or similar apply – i.e. just a swim hat and normal trunks, no touching the boat etc.
